I'm just getting home from teaching a pastel class at Lux Center for the Arts in Lincoln, Ne. My brain is fuzzy, my dogs are barking and my heart is full. What a great time!
It is a great honor to work with students like these, who are open minded and willing to stretch out of their comfort zone.
I threw alot of information at these artists. We talked alot about color, building space, texture, and when to put the happy couple on the wedding cake. (You may have had to be there to understand that last one.) It was really exciting to watch them go from making hesitant pecks to confident strokes, from "whaddo-I-do-now?" to "here's what I have in mind".
A few moments from the weekend . . .
